David Mamet’s explosive drama examines the fickle nature of honour among thieves. As three small-time crooks plan one big-time heist, a tragedy of errors spins this razor-sharp and darkly funny play into a blistering account of divided loyalties, insatiable greed and a coveted Buffalo nickel.
Damain Lewis, known internationally for his Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning performance as ‘Nicholas Brody’ in Homeland, returns to the West End, alongside the Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner John Goodman and Outer Critics Circle Theatre Award winner Tom Sturridge, in this major new revival directed by Daniel Evans.

The Elephant Man: Bradley Cooper Is Outstanding In Scott Ellis’ West End Transfer
Ellis and co.’s wonderful revival of Bernard Pomerance’s 1977 play began life in 2012, in Williamstown, Massachusetts, as a part of the town’s prestigious Theatre Festival. The production then went on to enjoy a highly-revered fourteen week run at Broadway’s Booth Theatre in late 2014. Now, the play has returned to its spiritual home, having been met with massive praise - and rightly so.

Everyone’s a Critic: The Gogglebox Effect
Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a great believer in good theatre etiquette. That means no eating, no texting, no photography, no getting up to go to the loo halfway through, unless it’s an absolute emergency - basically, sit still, keep quiet and watch the show. Thank you very much.
I’ve ranted about this on many occasions, not that it seems to make much difference (I think the people who read and emphatically agree are not the culprits, sadly). But there’s a new habit I’ve noticed on the rise recently, and I’m going to christen it the Gogglebox Effect.
